Author(s): Daniel Gray-Barnett
On an ordinary day, in an even more ordinary town, it was Albert's birthday. When Grandma Z roars into town on her motorcycle, Albert is swept up in a very extraordinary adventure. This glorious debut from Daniel Gray-Barnett is filled with wonder, imagination, and a wild, magical spirit that will thrill young and old.
`Grandma Z celebrates the power of vivid imagination, and the illustrations are absolutely spectacular, with bold colours and strong brushstrokes that convey a magical world ... Daniel Gray-Barnett ... has created something entirely unique that is both readable and a visual feast.' - Angela Crocombe, Books+Publishing
